Critic Reviews for Return to Montauk
Sadly this Colm Tóibín-assisted effort has none of the warmth of his best work.
Wolff cuts a fascinating if frustrating figure, and you wish the film would spend a bit more time teasing out who she is, how she lives, and what she sees in a bore like Max.
[An] emotionally inert drama about an author trying to reanimate the past.
Nothing really rings true in Return to Montauk until the pain breaks through and the tears start to flow. Perhaps that's the point.
What energy the picture had in New York's literary world dissipates as the film turns into the kind of conversation which is only really interesting for the two people it concerns.
Audience Reviews for Return to Montauk
A mildly interesting (if not at all memorable) character study that benefits from strong performances (especially Nina Hoss) and displays a mature understanding of the personal conflict faced by a self-centered man who wants to relive an old romance from his past.
